I had a routine follow up call from my NHS endo. I should have cancelled this because I am now seeing a private endo.
Forgot all about it though.
He asked how I was, and after hearing that I was now seeing a different endo asked how that is going. I mentioned that new endo had prescribed T3 due to my low T4 T3 conversion rates.
He then stated that any perceived improved wellbeing was due to the placebo effect. I wasnt ready for the call and didnt have my usual notes in front of me do was unable to articulate all the info I have learned on this site + over the last couple of years.
He then called my p. endo a charlatan and quoted papers that evidenced that T3 does not make a difference used alongside T4.
Felt a little upset after the call and started to doubt myself. I have a pile of printouts stating the pro T3 case. They are in a jiggerly mess and I am not able to collate and collect documents to send to him by email. My CFS is pretty poor Atm.
My call for help is:
Does anyone have just one or two documents or papers that succinctly state that T3 as well as T4 is important to regain full thyroid health so that I can send them on to my now ex NHS endo.
What is also unsettling is that this consultant appears to be highly regarded.
I am feeling tired and confused by ut all
Thank you for any help
